If you’re looking to get your career in computer science started, Disney may just have a solution for you.


As of today, Disney has launched a new coding tutorial called Moana: Wayfinding with Code. This free introduction to computer science works similarly to a video game. Users help Moana and Maui sail across the ocean and learn the basics of coding along the way to assist in steering and sailing the boat. Later in the experience, the Kakamora attack Moana and Maui, forcing players the utilize their coding skills in order to avoid attacks.


Coding is broken down to a simpler version called “Blocks,” which just requires dragging and dropping in order to write code. This vey rudimentary take on coding will help learners to grasp the more difficult concepts that come with text-based programming.

Moana: Wayfinding with Code can be accessed for free here.

For the third year, Disney is collaborating with Code.org to host Hour of Code. This year’s Hour of Code events will take place from December 5 through 11 as part of CS Education Week. During the week, Apple stores worldwide will be hosting coding sessions using Moana: Wayfinding with Code.


Moana: Wayfinding with Code will be available in over 180 countries and in 23 languages.
